12 Popular Inspirational Life Quotes

The Perfect Quotes For When You Need Uplifting

There are few things in life I love more than a good motivational quote. Whether it’s something as simple as “work hard and don’t give up” or something more profound like “failure is not a sign of weakness, but of courage.” These quotes inspire me to keep going, even when times get tough. They remind me that with enough determination and perseverance, I can accomplish anything—no matter how big or small that goal may be!

“Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” 

We’ve all been there: you’re sitting at home, minding your own business, and then the phone rings. It’s your boss. You’ve done something wrong; it’s embarrassing; they want to meet with you. You’re not sure what to expect—they could fire you or they might just ask for a small apology. Either way, this isn’t going to be fun. 

While this scenario might seem like an obvious example of failure (if not THE definition of “failure”), I assure you that there is positive growth waiting on the other side of it all! In fact, this type of situation can be seen as an opportunity for personal growth if we allow ourselves to see it as such.

“We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated.” 

You may encounter many defeats in your life, but always remember to not be defeated. Remember that no matter how many times you fail at something, the only way to truly fail is to give up. Don’t be discouraged by failures and setbacks. Learn from mistakes and move on. 

Don’t let the setbacks get you down! The key is to keep going; don’t let anything get in the way of achieving your goals or pursuing your dreams. 

“Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do.” 

You’ve probably heard the saying, “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.” It was written in a book called The Art of War by Sun Tzu, who was an ancient Chinese general and strategist. This quote is an example of using motivational quotes to inspire you to action and improve your life. It also happens to be one of my favorite motivational quotes! 

“In order to succeed, your desire for success should be greater than your fear of failure.” 

“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” 

  • Michael Jordan 

“The difference between successful people and very successful people is that very successful people say no to almost everything.” 

  • Warren Buffett 

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” 

  • Winston Churchill 

“If you want to achieve excellence, you can get there today. As of this second, quit doing less than excellent work.” 

The only way you can achieve excellence is by doing excellent work. So if you want that, then get it done. You’re not going to get it done by sitting around waiting for the perfect opportunity or being afraid of failure or success, being afraid of what other people think, being afraid of what you don’t know and so forth. It’s time to quit doing less than excellent work! 

“A creative man is motivated by the desire to achieve, not by the desire to beat others” 

This quote comes from Pablo Picasso. Pablo Picasso is a Spanish artist who created many paintings, sculptures and ceramics during his lifetime. He was also known for his strong opinions about art, which he shared publicly in interviews and essays. This quote shows how his creative spirit motivated him while other artists were focused on winning competitions with other painters. 


These quotes are very motivating and inspirational. But there is one thing we must remember: no matter how much you want to achieve your goals, if you don’t put in the work then nothing will happen! So go out there and try something new today, because tomorrow might never come
